General introduction to laboratory experimental genetics. Topics include gene transmission, linkage, recombination, gene structure, mutations, and manipulation.
When Offered Fall, Spring, Summer.
Permission Note Not open to: freshmen in the fall semester.
Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite or corequisite: BIOMG 2800. Recommended prerequisite: BIOG 1500. If you have not taken BIOMG 1350 or biochemistry (BIOMG 3300, BIOMG 3320, BIOMG 3330, or BIOMG 3350) previously, it is recommended that you take BIOMG 2800 as a prerequisite for BIOMG 2801.
Distribution Category (OPHLS-AG)
Comments Biological sciences majors must take course for a letter grade. Offered in even number years only for summer session.Outcomes
- Think analytically and creatively about the applications of basic principles of inheritance and molecular genetics to interpretations of naturally occurring and experimental biological phenomena.
- Gain basic laboratory skills in genetics, molecular biology, and data recording that are generally useful in biological and medical research.
- Become familiar with basic tools of bioinformatics, including genome databases, genome browsers, and programs facilitating the comparison of DNA and protein sequences.
- Develop an understanding of how the scientific method works and how analysis of raw experimental and control data is the foundation for scientific conclusions.
- Develop an understanding of real-world biological constraints on the design and execution of experiments involving live organisms.
- Synthesize an integrated view of inheritance extending from nucleotide sequences through gene expression and chromosome mechanics.
Eight Week Summer.
